Book Drive Held to Support Hartford’s Park Street Library

Hartford, CT – Downes Construction Company hosts book drive to support Frog Hollow Community.

The company provided construction management services for the recently completed Park Street Library @ the Lyric. The new branch will provide a community resource to the retail and residential neighborhood. The new building includes a 150-seat community room, smaller meeting rooms, learning lab, a café, exhibit space and designated adult, teen and children’s areas, and a protected courtyard.

In honor of the new library’s completion, Downes hosted a book drive, collecting books in both Spanish and English for children of all ages in the Frog Hollow community. The books were given to the community at an event on the new terrace on  August 26. In addition to free books, there was a complimentary ice cream truck for attendees to enjoy.
